I write, speak, invest, network, and question to stimulate fruitful conversation. Let's talk about human flourishing! It begins with freedom. Holy leisure is the key to human being, freedom and generativity. Please join me in the adventure of realizing Christ!
OK – here you go: In this talk I do just that – give concrete, practical ways to dip into the kind of leisure that brings interior equanimity and leaves you more whole, more human, more able to balance all the demands of life.
Caution – one of my ‘theories,’ is that part of what makes your Sabbath practice effective in developing your capacity for Christ is conscious design of that practice. You can hear what might be done (and get some good ideas, see what resonates with you, be stimulated to overhaul your Sabbath day), but you still must choose what you will, or won’t do, freely. In that freedom is your authentic consideration of the ways you tend to get unbalanced, lose equanimity, wobble.
Sabbath is tonic – it brings you back to a clear, centered ‘tone’ from disintegration that has taken you in any number of different directions. Sabbath brings you home, if you’ll learn to practice it without legalism, without license – freely. And I’d like to help you do that!
